I. .tent THE WEEKLY HERALD I year In: advance 11.00 C months in House Discusses Irrigation Act CONTINUED.FROM FRONT PAGE On the suggestion of Mr. Olivet, the minister .inserted a clause pro- viding that nothing in the bill shall interfere with any litigation which may be in progress at the present time. It was announced when the House closed that C. N. R. resolutions will be brought up today, probably at 3 o'clock. Three Licenses 3 Months Only CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAOB TURNING THE TABLES. ACCORDING to what appears to be an author- ized version, the calling offsof the Ward. IV. smoker at Toronto was not due to the associa- tion, bat to R. B. Bennett himself. Mr. Bennett js said to have sent the following telegram: "Not being in accord with government policy on Canadian Northern as at present declared, regret will be unable to address Conservative association on May fourth. Have sent similar lettergram to Birming- ham. Missed Bristol who has left city to- day." This however doles not alter the main feature jof the incident. It .-the existence of a spirit the public treasury would have been the richer by some thousands of dollars. A generous way of describing the transaction would be Uiat the responsible authorities were guilty of. gross carelessness. But in view of the circumstances this may well be qualified by styl- ing it culpable and reprehensible, and the'fact that friends of the government figured in the deal make it appear iu as bad a light as possible. .Which the member for Calgary is apprised of His open to cl.jticism. It may- action proves that it iriust'have intuitively meet the situation in a to Mm that, iu disagreeing with, the government on its C.-N. he had- made himself non- acceptable to his party. In taking the. initiative he came to "the rescue of. the particular associa- tion, and so relieved it in -its -dilemma; Mr. Bennett might, if he had so have allowed for a spirit of by ap- pearing at 'the smoker. In riot wishing, to be present as an unwelcome guest he probably diag- nosed the particular nature of the Toronto Con- servative association. It would be interesting to know whether [Ward IV. is feeling a grievance at being mis- judged. If so there is hope for the Conservative parly, and for politics in general. Mr. Bennett, on his part, has shown himself more human than probably many have thought him. W THE STORY OF A POST OFFICE SITE. IE have before us a transaction which not onlj' places the Borden government in the light of lacking the careful business considera- tion needed in dealing with the public money, but also lays it open to a charge of favoring its friends. The particular matter refers to the purchase of a site for a post office at Fort Frances, Ontario, ,vhere an agent for the Dominion government was allowed to purchase land at the price of and turn it over to the government for leaving the purchaser the handsome pro- Jit of at the expense of the country. In July 1912, according to evidence given be- fore the Public Accounts Committee, Sir. A. D. George, a prominent Conservative of Fort Fran- ces, was appointed to act as agent for the govern- ment in securing the land for the office building. Two adjoining lots were to be pur- chased. One of the two was owned by a Mr. Frawley, a Fort Frances druggist, and through a law clerk named Anderson, employed in his own office, Mr. George secured an option on this piece of ground for On the second lot the op- tion was for 51500. After both options had been obtained the properties were purchased by Mr. George who, it was testified, represented that his clerk, Anderson, was acting as agent for the gov- SHOULD GUARD AGAINST HIGH CHARGES. IF the Dominion government has overlooked, as Hon. Frank Oliver charges, lo make provis- ion whereby the railways will establish a storage freight rate for grain to and from internal stor- age elevator points, they have left themselves e that the railways vay which will suit all parties. If they do not, it may be that the Do- minion Railway Commission will he able to over- come any obstacle the railways may place in the way of the best use of the elevators for the people are supposed to farmers. :But nil will admit that the fiesl way to provide againstiany possible -contingencies is to remove them before they :anse, and the government should busy themselves: immediately in solving the problem, now that it has been pointed out. There are some objections to the internal ele- vators on the part of the farmers as, the claim being put forward that the farmers will have to stand the cost of putting the grain through the establishments, and if additional freight rates are saddled on top of this, it.will simply mean that the farmers will not be able to avail themselves of the use of the elevators which, we are told, are being built as a boon to the farmers, and to offset any advantage the U. S. market might offer. If the Bordeu government do not want their internal elevator scheme to be an utter failure, they should provide right now against, any possibility of high charges that will place the elevators out of reach of the ordinary farmer. to the satisfaction of depart- ment Dallas Hotel, Lethbridge, re- commended during- currency ot lease H.

Our own institutions stand vindicated.. Bet a nickel W. F. Nickle and R. B. Bennett are at the foot of the Tory class down at Ottawa. But their stock is hitting the.liigh spots in the west.

If every organ- ization in the city were to select a plot and deter- mine lo make it the most beautiful in the park, under the direction of the park superintendent of course, it would not be many years until Hen- derson Park would be the beauty spot of tho west, and doubly enjoyable on account of the many as- sociations engendered in the making. Let us adopt the bright idea, and make it something to build on. Our Arbor Day scheme proved a suc- cess, attracting wide attention.
